“I used to be a poet”
My daily quote to those who ask
“I used to write”
My mantra to myself for a decade
Alcoholics are always alcoholics.
Never will they touch a drink
without succumbing to it’s sweet
Writers are forever writers.
We see a scrap of paper, begging
for our musings.
A pen lies on the ground – we must
pick it up.
We see a blank page and a keyboard;
we itch to make music with our thoughts.
A decade of denial,
of kicking the pen away,
of turning the computer off.
But now i confess,
I stand before you all,
and swear that i am a poet.
